A SAFE SPACE TO SHARE YOUR GRIEF
Our programs serve adults, teens and children through individual support sessions and peer-to-peer grief support groups that are specific to the relationship to the person who died.
Grieving children, teens and adults deserve the opportunity to experience the healing process in a safe, warm and nurturing environment. The healing process is enhanced through the friendships and connections that are developed in our support groups.
There is no universal way to cope with a loss of a loved one; however, sharing our thoughts and feelings, facts and fears, helps to provide a new sense of normal and understanding. Our trained grief facilitators and professional staff work together to create a safe, caring and non-judgmental space that empowers participants through each unique grief journey.
Human connection is essential to one's healing process after experiencing the loss of a loved one. In grief, we often feel isolated and alone. Both our open and closed groups help those grieving by creating a powerful atmosphere of connection and support. Prior to attending each group, all participants must go through an intake assessment which includes a 1:1 peer support session.
We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and accessible community where grief is openly discussed and destigmatized. At the Centre for Grief & Healing, we believe that there is hope after a loved one dies and it is this hope that we help foster in the individual. Through annual community events such as our Walk to Remember and our Loving Memory Ceremony we come together to build resiliency and strength, despite our tragedies.
OUR SERVICES REMAIN FREE OF CHARGE THANKS TO THE GENEROUS SUPPORT OF INDIVIDUAL DONORS, CORPORATIONS, COMMUNITY GROUPS, ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS AND OUR COMMUNITY FUNDERS.
WE ARE SO THANKFUL TO EVERYONE WHO MAKES OUR WORK POSSIBLE.
